TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Certified Teacher, 11 Years at the High School level Adjunct faculty at local University

MY TEACHING STYLE

You will find a nice balance between student centered constructivist learning and text dependent work. I generally focus on helping students create meaning out of text by habitually using evidence to support thinking. Keeping in mind that the text remains the vehicle, the objectives are usually a combination of skill building and developing depth of meaning.
